Magic Johnson and New Bloods, Portland Oregon circa 2005-2008
While I was a mere teen in surburban deep south USA, I was angry. I turned to punk because it made the most sense to me, lyric wise and musically- it was aggressive and critical. However, those who introduced me to punk and the punk I was introduced to looked like my environment, white. Finding out about these QPOC bands, along with the classic poc hardcore bands made me feel comfortable with what I thought and what I liked.
Yeah I’m pretty much about to reblog everything from @punkintheafricandiaspora and not be sorry one bit.
